Hold on to your horses! So many quests so little time…
This review is from: The Black Fortress (The Death Wizard Chronicles) by Jim Melvin.
A very short read. It started off well, grabbed my attention, but almost lost me near the end where the story should have peaked.
I actually felt sorry for the protagonist. Phew! *Whistle* The poor soul…so many quests so little time.
No wonder that by the time he gets to the beast he did not have enough steam/energy left to make this last, very important fight/battle the most exciting/outstanding one.
Despite that, I like the author’s writing style, and would read the next book in this series.
